 Marteus's "Y" Story

"My Dad had a membership here and I would come a few times a year with him as a guest. I especially enjoy using the weight room and basketball court when I workout. Working out at the Y is very therapeutic for me. I've been coming for a little over a year. The members and staff are always so friendly when I visit. "
